    In vivo Micro-Tomographic Visualization of Capillary Angio-Dynamics Around Upper Dermis Under Mechanical Stimulus Using Low Coherence Interferometer “Optical Coherence Doppler Velocigraphy”

    The skin aging process, e.g. wrinkles and sagging, caused by not only aging but also ultraviolet irradiation, could be related to the depression of metabolic function. Therefore, an in vivo quantitative measurement of capillary blood flow velocity governing skin metabolism functionally, i.e. microcirculation, is crucial to clarify the skin aging and to create skincare products. The purpose of this study is to visualize the tomographic velocity of red blood cell in capillaries just below human epidermal skin using Optical Coherence Doppler Velocigraphy, namely OCDV. This was constructed on a low coherence interferometer, which could provide tomographic distribution of ...
